Good Books For Women Who Hate Chick-lit.
The Color Purple
"A wonderful story of life, passion, redemption & forgiveness"
Gone with the Wind
"A sweeping saga set against the background of the American Civil War. Much better than the film. & don't be put off by the book cover - this definitely isn't a bodice-ripping romance!"
To Kill A Mockingbird
"Written from a child's perspective, wonderful story , a great and easy read."
The Go-Between (Penguin Modern Classics)
"A superb rite-of-passage story set in England in 1900. Very evocative of the period."
"I finished this book then started it again straight away!"
Case Histories: (Jackson Brodie)
"Wonderfully written, interwoven mystery storyline - a page turner."
We Need To Talk About Kevin (Five Star Paperback)
"After finishing this book you will want to share it with others so you can debate and discuss it - haunts your thoughts long afterwards."
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time
"Funny, sad, clever and illuminating."
The Light Years (Cazalet Chronicles)
"Set in middle class England just before advent of WW2, great chracterisations, first in a series of 4 - all recommended."
Behind The Scenes At The Museum
"Brilliantly evocative interwoven stories of three generations of women."
"A graphic and horrifying historical account of the Holocaust. To quote one reviewer, you will "Read this book with bleeding eyes"."
The Pursuit of Love
"Pure comedy - worth reading just for the character of Uncle Matthew!"
Wild Swans: Three Daughters of China
"Absorbing account of three generations of women in 20th Century China."
The Blind Assassin
"Superb - reflects the changing role of women over past 70 years or so, plus you get three storylines in this huge, wonderful book."
Northanger Abbey (Penguin Popular Classics)
"My all-time favourite by Jane Austen"
The Lord of The Rings (Based on the 50th Anniversary Single volume edition 2004)
"Simply the best book of all time."
Beneath the Skin
"I love the different characterisations of the 3 women in this murder mystery."
Roses from the Earth: The Biography of Anne Frank
"A cracking biography of Ann Frank's life and death."
King Solomon's Carpet
"My favourite of all Ruth Rendell's works."
Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistlestop Cafe
"Stunning story of life experienced by two women in the 1920's and 1980's."
"This book made me cry with laughter and with sadness. I defy you to read it WITHOUT having an Irish accent in your head all the time!"
Stuart: A Life Backwards
"Excellent biography about a homeless man - inspiring, funny, sad, topical - will make you reflect on the unfairness of the system."
"Psychological mystery set against the sweeping backdrop of the Cornish coastline."
Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit
"Wonderful, rite of passage/coming-out story."
"Cleverly uses historical characters (the family and feuds of King Henry II) as the baseline plot for this family saga set in turn of the century Cornwall. A nice, fat, wallowing read!"
